Taxi Driver released in February 1976, going on to court controversy and critical adulation in equal measure.
41 years later, we’re bringing it back to the big screen in a stunning new print from a 4K restoration, which was supervised by Director Martin Scorsese and Cinematographer Michael Chapman. It opens on Friday the 10th of February and you can get tickets right here.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film last year, the main cast got together with Scorsese for a discussion on the classic nature of Taxi Driver and why it has endured for so long.
Watch the video below for comments from Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel and Cybill Shepard.
It’s fascinating to hear how these iconic scenes came together, and to hear how grateful everyone involved is that the film has endured for more than four decades.
Taxi Driver opens at the IFI from the 10th of February 2017. Book tickets here.
